BALTIMORE — A judge ordered two teens charged with raping a woman after they followed her off of an MTA bus two weeks ago to be held without bail Tuesday afternoon.

Baltimore police arrested 14-year-old Wilmer Ramos, 14-year-old Phillip Worrell, and 14-year-old Nile Campbell last Thursday. A fourth juvenile, a 12-year-old was present during the assault and was also arrested and charged.

According to police, the group followed a 19-year-old woman as she got off an MTA bus and walked along North Fulton Avenue near West Saratoga Street. They forced her into an alley at gunpoint and sexually assaulted her. Neighbors came out of their home, interrupting the assault and the group ran away.

Today, the three were in court for a bail review hearing. Both Campbell and Ramos were ordered held without bail. Worrell's review was postponed when the lawyer his family said they hired didn't show up.

The only teen that had family in the courtroom was Ramos. His mother told WMAR 2-News she was hoping for bail as charging documents show her son was not one of the two defendants who committed the sexual assault.
"It feels like a big bad dream," Ramos' mother Angel Devilbiss said, "Like, I am going into his room at night and opening the door and he is not there and it is just making me crazy because he is not there with me."

The judge in the case called the alleged crime a "very vicious attack" and that the defendants presented a "tremendous danger."

All three teens face 44 charges including rape, assault and kidnapping.
